Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I don't know what I did exactly, but when my touchpad "froze" (another story) I started to make random combinations with the keyboard, and seems that accidentally I deleted my workspaces. I had 4, and now I only have 1. It's curious, but on Unity-3D, the 4 workspaces still there (cause it's use compiz, no?).

Well, how can I restore my workspaces?

Regards.

Edit: Ok, tried to do what says in this thread How to add multiple workspaces in Unity 2D? but don't work for me :(

On the dconf editor, in the /apps section, it doesn't shown /metacity, but I have it installed!

/apps/metacity is only available in gconf-edit ... I tried 'gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/num_workspaces --type int 5' on Unity 2D on 11.10 and I was able to set the number of workspaces to 5 –  Adi Roiban Oct 16 '11 at 23:33

Worked for me on 12.04 Beta 1, as well, after a bug where GNOME Shell affecting the number of Unity 2D workspaces was fixed and I was stuck with only one. Thanks much! –  WarriorIng64 Mar 24 '12 at 3:15
